Dark brown-black body, medium to thin light tan head, soapy lacing. Roasted malt, light chocolate, smoke, and grainy toast. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, a hair thin in the middle, light sweetness, roasty finish.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2014
On tap at NW. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a smaller sized off white head. Roast, chocolate, and smoke. Softer smokiness and not a ’put your face in a campfire’ smoke.

alobar (2804) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Cola brown color with a creamy tan head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, and some chocolate. Creamy body with subtle, but dominant smoke flavor along with roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Rather nice beer.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2010
On tap, Smoke ’em if ya Gots ’em Fest 2010. Pours a clear dark brown with a frothy light brown head. The nose is moderate ashy smoke, some chocolate malt, and a touch of nuttiness. The flavor is way more Porter than Smoked, just a light hint of smoke on the back end. It’s a pretty decent Porter though, nicely chocolaty with some coffee notes. Medium bodied with light soft carbonation, some lingering sweetness. Decent beer, but not quite enough smoke for this guy.

Overall, similar to the Pig Iron Porter, but in my opinion all around better. The smoke in the aroma was subtle. I did find this beer to be a bit more full-bodied. It also lacked the unpleasant tones I encountered in that beer. Still, this beer lacked the bitterness that I like in porters, and, for a smoked porter, I could have taken a lot more smokiness before I would think there was too much. In this one, it was barely detectable. A bit too sweet for me as well.

GMCC2181 (1509) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUN 23, 2010
On tap at IH Newark: Poured into a pint glass, black in color, small tan colored head. Doesnt smell that smokey... Little chocolate on the nose with lots of roasted malts. Taste is ashey, with a light smoke in the after taste. Lots of roasted malts in the flavor. Texture is almost creamy, very drinkable. Overall a well balanced, drinkable beer.

20100531 tap at Newark. Yes yes yes! I am definitely a fan of their regular porter and using that recipe as the base for the smoked is ideal. Aroma is chocolate, charcoal, and wood smoke with light caramel and wheat toast. Body is soft, lush, yet drying with a nice dusty finish. Some gripping earthy hops brighten and tighten the palate. Very good smoked porter.

On draft at the Newark location. Pour was typical porter-like brown with a generous and foamy off-white head. Aroma was caramel, smoke, chocolate, roast. The flavor followed, smoke fairly subdued for a smoke beer. Nicely done, smooth, malty molasses touch to the finish. The mouthfeel was full, comparable to the pig iron porter - probably the same base beer.
